First-Time Power Up Considerations
The first time you turn on the logic analyzer, the Windows® Welcome session
starts. Your logic analyzer configuration and the answers to the Windows
Welcome questions are affected by how you choose to use the logic analyzer.
Use the Enter and arrow keys on the attached keyboard. The logic analyzer front-panel keys
do not work until Windows is running.
Determine Whether the Instrument will be Connected to the Network
If you plan to use COM automation to programmatically control a logic analyzer from a
remote computer, be aware that the remote computer and the logic analyzer must both
have the same kind of network membership; that is, they must both be members of a
"Workgroup", or they must both be members of a "Domain". This is due to the security
requirements of Distributed COM.
You are going to use the logic analyzer as a standalone instrument (no LAN
connection). Printing requires a printer attached to the logic analyzer, sharing
files is done via USB flash drive or floppy disk.
Connected to a Network
If you require the ability to print, share files, remotely control the logic
analyzer, etc. over the network, you need to either join a workgroup or
Get Network Setup Information
For networking, find out whether the network that your instrument will be
connected to uses the Microsoft Workgroup model or Microsoft Domain model.
In order for your instrument to perform tasks over the network (print,
transfer files, etc.) your instrument must be configured appropriately for the
networking model in use at your site.
1680-Series Quick Start/Installation
Information you may require to complete your network configuration may
include, but is not limited to,
• The Workgroup or Domain name.
• Methodology for assigning IP addresses at your site (for example, DHCP).
• Domain Name Service (DNS).
Other network information that may be readily available from your network
1680-Series Quick Start/Installation
Answering Windows Welcome Questions
Once you have determined how you want to use your logic analyzer and your
network configuration, power up your logic analyzer and answer the Windows
Welcome questions.

Ready to register with Microsoft
Windows XP is already enabled to run on the logic analyzer. This registration is to
allow Microsoft to contact you.
Who will use this computer?
For All: Entering names here lets multiple users use the logic analyzer with
administrator permissions. By default their passwords will be blank.
If expected Windows Welcome questions do not appear
During first-time power-up, depending on the configuration of your network,
some of the Windows Welcome questions that should appear, like “Is this
computer in a domain?”, may not appear.
If this occurs, you need to change the logic analyzer’s network setup (after the
first-time power up) using the normal Windows XP methods (see “Changing
Network Settings" on page 15).

1680-Series Quick Start/Installation
Probing is the key to effective and efficient use of logic analyzers. Agilent
Technologies offers a wide variety of probing accessories that support
general-purpose and application-specific measurement needs. We provide
reliable, electrically and mechanically unobtrusive probes that make it easy to
connect your Agilent logic analyzer to your system under test. For more
information on Agilent probes:
• See the quick reference card that came with your logic analyzer for an
overview of probing solutions.
• Go to for the most up-to-date
information on probe compatibility with a given logic analyzer and
purchasing information.
• Go to and search for Probing Solutions for Logic
Analyzers (publication 5968-4632E) for a catalog of detailed probing
To connect and set up a probe, follow the instructions in the User’s Guide that
came with the probe.
Changing Network Settings
To make network changes after the first-time power up:
• To change from a workgroup to a domain or vice versa, click Start then
right click on My Computer and select Properties. Select the Computer
Name tab and click Change.
• To change network connection properties, click Start>Control
Panel>Network Connections. Select the connection you want to change
and click Change settings of this connection.
For more information on changing network settings, refer to the Windows XP
online help.

Changing Windows Firewall Settings
When 1680-series logic analyzers are shipped from the factory, the Windows
Firewall is enabled and set up with the exceptions required by the logic
To give other applications/ports access through the firewall
For example, you may need to change firewall settings in order to:
• Use NetOp to remotely control the logic analyzer.
• Use RealVNC to remotely control the logic analyzer.
To change firewall settings to give other applications/ports access:
1 From the Windows Start menu, choose Start>Control Panel.
2 In the Control Panel window, open Windows Firewall.
1680-Series Quick Start/Installation
3 In the Windows Firewall dialog, click the Exceptions tab.
4 In the Exceptions tab, if the program or service is listed, check its box to
enable it; otherwise, click Add Program... to give unlisted applications
permission to penetrate the firewall, or click Add Port... to give unlisted
ports access through the firewall.
Refer to the application’s documentation for information on port numbers
or other firewall setup information.
Note that there are separate Windows Firewall profiles: Domain for when the computer has
domain membership, and Standard for when the computer has workgroup membership. If
you change the type of membership, any changes you made to the Windows Firewall
settings will have to be made again.
1680-Series Quick Start/Installation
To restore the logic analyzer firewall defaults

Safety Notices
This apparatus has been designed and tested in accordance with IEC
Publication 1010, Safety Requirements for Measuring Apparatus, and has been
supplied in a safe condition. This is a Safety Class I instrument (provided with
terminal for protective earthing). Before applying power, verify that the
correct safety precautions are taken (see the following warnings). In addition,
note the external markings on the instrument that are described under "Safety
• Before turning on the instrument, you must connect the protective earth
terminal of the instrument to the protective conductor of the (mains) power
cord. The mains plug shall only be inserted in a socket outlet provided with
a protective earth contact. You must not negate the protective action by
using an extension cord (power cable) without a protective conductor
(grounding). Grounding one conductor of a two-conductor outlet is not
sufficient protection.
• Only fuses with the required rated current, voltage, and specified type
(normal blow, time delay, etc.) should be used. Do not use repaired fuses or
short-circuited fuse holders. To do so could cause a shock or fire hazard.
• If you energize this instrument by an auto transformer (for voltage
reduction or mains isolation), the common terminal must be connected to
the earth terminal of the power source.
• Whenever it is likely that the ground protection is impaired, you must make
the instrument inoperative and secure it against any unintended operation.
• Service instructions are for trained service personnel. To avoid dangerous
electric shock, do not perform any service unless qualified to do so. Do not
attempt internal service or adjustment unless another person, capable of
rendering first aid and resuscitation, is present.
• Do not install substitute parts or perform any unauthorized modification to
the instrument.
• Capacitors inside the instrument may retain a charge even if the
instrument is disconnected from its source of supply.
1680-Series Quick Start/Installation
• Do not operate the instrument in the presence of flammable gasses or
fumes. Operation of any electrical instrument in such an environment
constitutes a definite safety hazard.
• Do not use the instrument in a manner not specified by the manufacturer.
• To optimize your comfort and productivity, it is important that you set up
your work area correctly and use your equipment properly. Refer to for set-up and
use recommendations
• Position equipment so that it is not difficult to disconnect the power cord.
To clean the instrument
If the instrument requires cleaning:
1 Remove power from the instrument.
2 Clean the external surfaces of the instrument with a soft cloth dampened
with a mixture of mild detergent and water.
3 Make sure that the instrument is completely dry before reconnecting it to a
power source.
